Is this really how they react to girls on XBOX live? (NSFW language)

How many of you get this every time you play?

What do they do, look at your username and call you out on it? Or do they wait till you talk?

Yea and I think it absolutely stinks. I hate playing in a sausage fest.

Stay classy, CoD players.

"Are you a girl?"

"Nice, I like that."

ಠ_ಠ

Wow, the youtube comments suck, too:

1.  Don't use a mic
2. Don't make your clan tag 'Lady'
problem solved?

If you took lady off your clan tag people wouldn't be harassing, so obviously your seeking attention.

Jesus christ, those guys could be discussing philosophy and I'd still want to kill them. This is why voice chat is God's punishment for an evil world.

Really though, reprehensible. Ladies, I apologize on behalf of my appalling gender, and humbly submit that all males age 13-24 be sequestered on Monster Island.

This...

This is why bot-modes should ALWAYS be included alongside multiplayer.

Killzone/Counterstrike/Red-Orchestra have it right.

Wow...I thought the whole purpose of paying for LIVE was to keep less classy people out.

I (use) to play all the time on PSN and would often play with a friend, who was also a girl. We were harrassed maybe like once, and that was by a kid (sounded like a kid) and we were the only one talking in the match.

Maybe it helped that we didn't have very girl-y handles. [Lucem712] & and [CptAwesome].

Though, I did have someone scream harassment at me because I was killing them a-lot. All while mispronouncing my username, saying 'Luck UM' instead of 'LOOSE EM'.

Apology denied! (evil laugh)

I BET THEY CALL YOU LUCK UM BECAUSE YOU CAN'T AIM NOOB. SPRAY MORE. THROW MORE GRENADES, THAT'S SKILL.

/joking

Anyway, I wondering if the positions would be reversed in a society dominated by women.

...I volunteer myself for this experiment.

I remember when that used to happen to me when I played Left 4 Dead, and a group that I used to pay TF2 with for a long time basically admitted to me that they only "let me in" to the group because I was a girl, and not my god-like heavy skills and humility. So it's not just CoD bros

Haha! Oh man, that brought back memories ;)
God, I hate projectiles :P

Less guns, more...lipgloss?

I don't think those guys really care that your a girl, it's just they are bullies and they have anonymity. If you were black, gay, religious, from another country or anything else different to them that they could conceivably use to try and insult you they would use that instead.

They just want to troll. They troll us all and they troll each other.

I ounce had one of my friends actually start a friendship with another girl on CoD by saying he was going ******* her after she kept dominating him on CoD. somehow they both became friends after she kicked his sorry ass 1 on 1.

true story.

I don't know. I don't think I want to know.

If there is anything that police shows have taught me, it's 'Bitches be crazy. Go gay today!' Watching their husbands slowly die because they keep force feeding him arsenic because his wife can't stand that he doesn't fit with her view of what a perfect life should be like.

What the hell, bro. What the heeeeell.

Bitches do be crazy. At least the arsenic ladies don't cut their fella's junk off. O_O (Though I heard that turned out okay for a guy, he's a porn-star or somethin' now)

Those guys obviously never touched a woman before. Whoops! Did I say that out loud?

MammothBlade:

Eeeyup. I am a female, with a female name on Steam, and it happens quite frequently on TF2. I don't mind it when it's people I know, or they say their bit and quickly drop it, but when it's just constant and over-the-top vulgar it is quite aggravating. Not all servers are like this, but it's a fair amount, and yes the vast majority of kids can't resist saying something.

This is why I've NEVER played multi-player on anything because I don't want to have to deal with that crap. The fact that I'm female shouldn't mean anything, but it does, and then you get assholes like that.

People say you shouldn't use a mic and you shouldn't let people know your a woman, but that's fucking stupid. I shouldn't have to hide my gender just so I can play a game.

I remember when I first got me PS3 now and again I would get on Playstation Home, just wander, checking it out and guys would literally FOLLOW me around this virtual world trying to flirt and saying rude shit...all because of a virtual avatar.

Eaaaaaarrgg,,,

Gaming, ladies and gentlemen, a pastime for mature adults!

(Yeah, yeah, sample bias, I know. Still.)

The internet is a good place for people to express their anger, and hate toward others without consequence. Most guys feel really inadequate around women, and this kind of trolling is purely based on that. They're taking every humiliation, every disappointment, every awkward interaction, and spewing that hate back at you. It's sad, and depressing.

What's worse is you've also got the other side of the coin, with the internet white knight. Those guys take all their hopes, and desires, and project them onto you making you the damsel they need to rescue. Best thing you can do is don't let it bother you. Realize that what they're saying comes from a place of vulnerability, and disappointment, and rise above.

Or. . .give it back to them if you like. Someone asks you if you've been fucked recently say "yeah. Your mom is an amazing lover too. she does things with that strap on you wouldn't believe. I do feel sorry for your dad thou, I think that carrot went a little too far up his a. . ." well you get the idea.

I'm confused. . .isn't refusing to play multiplayer games the same as not using a mic? You're hiding just the same. . .

Yes. We're bastards. Sorry about that.

This happens pretty much in every multiplayer game on xbox live. That's why there's a mute button.

This...

Killzone/Counterstrike/Red-Orchestra have it right.

COD: Black Ops has a bot mode

My xbox live user name doesn't denote that I'm female, but I was playing a multiplayer on there about 18 months ago and some "genius" worked out from my voice that I did indeed have lady parts. I recieved that much verbal abuse over the next hour that it put me off multiplayer for a year. Only got back into it with Assassin's Creed and ME3.

However I now refuse to plug in my headset, so if anyones talking to me... sorry!

I think this is more indicative of CoD players than gamers on the whole as whilst not being female myself, there are two females who regularly game in the household and have never suffered anything comparable to the insults in that video. The closest one has come was a single idiot child in Halo who stupidly questioned if she was indeed a female, and then followed it up with, "Are you fat?". The comment was ignored and nothing more was said.

Steam is a lot better again, there's quite a few female members in my clan and friends list who regularly play together so something must be going right. Whilst I know an element of sexism exists with certain groups/people elsewhere, I think it's worth remembering that shittalking has been associated with gaming for a long time (not that I agree with it) and it's easy to confuse the two. So what would come out as an attack on a male's sexuality in one instance changes to sexist remarks once a gender difference has been established; their sex is not the cause of the abuse, but rather the type of insult. Context.

My tuppence worth for now.

"Has anyone banged you......like recently?" best.......line......ever, stay classy america

i remember seeing a comercial on the discovery channel that had some game developer saying the future of gaming was multiplayer... i present this as evidence why hes stupid.

give people the ability to hide hehind being anonymous and their true character comes out which usually tends to be hatefilled, nasty, bigotted, harrassing and very occassionally and rarest of all. nice

The really funny bit is that you can tell a few of those kids aren't old enough to be playing M games.

Look on the bright side. Makes them more satisfying to kill.

Kahunaburger:

take it like a man.

Lol'd. Although I guess they have a point. Both making a big deal of being a girl and flaming them is stupid.

OT: Who gives a fuck about the chick, those folks were tubing in Search. Noobs.

Their hatred for women is palpable, I wonder how life is treating them?

To be honest though, that type of treatment isn't only reserved for women in CoD, there are people who will sit in a lobby with their mike on and if you so much as say a word they start screaming obscenities and insulting you. Its crazy, one of the reasons I put the game down.

Back when we still used LAN cables, I once was at a Halo party that had a young lady playing. We didn't treat her any differently than the guys. Well, technically, we started by taking easy on her because she was new to the game; but that had nothing to do with her gender.
